Israeli forces detained two Palestinian children, aged eight and seven-years-old, on Tuesday in front of their homes in East Jerusalem, a local committee said.

Amjad Abu Asab, head of local group representing the families of Palestinian prisoners, said Israeli forces arrestedMuhammad Abdullah Yaqoub Shweiki, seven, and Amir Muhammad Abbasi, eight, outside of their home in the Silwan neighborhood.

They were both taken to the notorious Oz police station in Jabal al-Mukabbir.

It is unclear why they were arrested.

Defense for Children International – Palestine says around 500-700 Palestinian children are detained and prosecuted each year in Israel’s military court system, usually on the charge of stone-throwing.
